In a blog post, Jane Muthoni, BAKE’s administration manager stated that the deadline has moved forward to allow more people their blogs.
“We have extended the submission phase of the BAKE Awards 2017 to 10th March 2017. The previous deadline was, today, 10th February 2017… We made the decision to extend the submission deadline in order to give bloggers more time to submit their blogs into the competition,” Muthoni stated.
The submission phase for entries opened on January 9 and with the current extension, the judging process will commence from March 11, 2017 after all the entries and continue till March 24, 2017.
Online voting will then begin from March 27 and run till May 9, 2017, culminating in the Winners’ Gala on May 13, 2017.
“The submission phase was launched on January 9th 2017 and we have been accepting blog submissions since then. We recently announced the addition of a new category, Human Rights, which is sponsored by the Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC). Ford Motors have also come on board as sponsors of the Lifestyle category,” added the post.
